Welcome to the An Tir Roll of Arms

The Populace Badge of An Tir

The An Tir Roll of Arms is a volunteer project, created at the behest of then Black Lion Principal Herald Marco Valentino.

The Roll was created by Frederic Badger serving at the whim of their majesties as Courroune Rouge Herald. The current Courrone Rouge Herald is Vémundr Syvursson.

The site contains the majority of the registered arms of the residents of the Kingdom of An Tir, and serves as a resource for the Kingdom.

December 2020 LoAR Added

Posted by Vémundr Syvursson on 2021-02-05

The final LoAR of 2020 has been added to the An Tir Roll; it was released 3 Feb 2021.

Five brand new devices, one replacement device, and one blazon correction on the Letter, and two out-of-Kingdom additions that were sent to me by email.

Mid-Year Known World Heraldic & Scribal Symposium, Bonus Plague Edition, was held on Zoom the weekend of Jan 22-24 and was a lot of fun and very well attended. I taught a version of my Inkscape for Heralds class to a great group of interested students. We also got word that the College of Arms will be making the virtual Mid-Year KWHSS a standard part of the calendar, even after the current Plague Time ends, which is awesome news for those of us who wouldn’t usually be able to travel to the in-person main event. My Inkscape class was recorded; when those recordings are posted I’ll share it on the next update here.

If you want to get a name, device, or badge registered, there is a Virtual Heralds Point that is taking submissions until Feb 14; the main advantage is that they have arranged payment via Paypal direct to the Laurel Exchequer, useful for the increasing number of folks without actual cheques available!

November 2020 LoAR Added

Posted by Vémundr Syvursson on 2021-01-10

The November 2020 LoAR, released December 31st, has been added to the Roll.

Eleven new entries, three changes of device for existing entries, and a few blazon changes or other admin actions round out a very busy Letter!

Of the eleven new entries (the most in several months!) only ONE has a corresponding OP entry that I can find, however! Please have a look at the Browse By Missing OP Entry page and if you recognize a name or arms, contact me by email and I'll get the person linked to their OP entry right away. There's a lot of lovely armoury in this month's Letter, it's a pity to leave it orphaned.

Reminder that the Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium Bonus Plague Edition 2021 starts on Friday 22 January and goes all of that weekend. Lots of great classes, seminars, and such, all virtual, and spread around a bit so folks from other time zones have a better chance of attending.

Happy New Year, stay safe, stay well, and commit good heraldry.

Yours in Service,
Vémundr Couronne Rouge

October 2020 LoAR Added

Posted by Vémundr Syvursson on 2020-12-01

The October 2020 LoAR, released on November 30, has been added to the An Tir Roll of Arms.

Seven new entries and one name change this month.

There have also been a couple of updates to existing entries sent in to me, most noticeably a very nice digital emblazon of the arms of the Barony of Wyewood, sent to me by Wyewood's Blak Shepe Pursuivant, Avine de Hert and created by Dejah of Wyewood.


I am always happy to have updated emblazons of existing entries sent to me. Vector graphics in SVG or AI are best, but good sized PNG or JPG at least 275 pixels wide by 330 pixels tall will work too.

If you don't have digital art skills but would like the digital emblazon of your Roll entry updated, please email me anyway and ask, I'll be happy to help.

Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium Bonus Plague Edition 2021 is rapidly approaching, 22-24 January 2021. I'll be running a version of my Inkscape for Digital Heraldry class and there are already lots of great sessions on the schedule. Check it out, and hope to (virtually) see you there!

This is likely the final Roll update for 2020, so Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and whatever other occasions you celebrate around this time of many, many festivals and observances. Stay safe, stay well, and commit good heraldry.

Yours in Service,
Vémundr Couronne Rouge

September 2020 LoAR Added

Posted by Vémundr Syvursson on 2020-11-07

The September 2020 LoAR, released on November 6, has been added to the An Tir Roll of Arms.

Six new entries, one name change, and one device registered in 1996 that was never added to the Roll for some reason and got noticed for a blazon change so now exists on the Roll at long last.

Hope the fall is going well for everyone. Stay safe, stay sane, and keep doing heraldry!

Yours in Service,
Vémundr Couronne Rouge
